Lucky ticket worth $25 million
Someone is holding the lone $270 million ticket from Friday’s drawing
Tuesday night’s jackpot is expected to top $400 million.
Jackpots like Wednesday’s anticipated $400 million-plus Powerball can grant a lot of wishes. But what if you were the only winner, and you had but one chance to blow all that money on a single purchase?
The Mega Millions jackpot soared to an estimated $636 million on Tuesday, making it the second largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history.
Lottery officials say Tuesday’s drawing could feature half-a-billion dollar winner.
If it seems that giant lottery jackpots have people lining up at convenience stores more frequently, just wait: More big payouts could be coming.
For the fourth consecutive year the Missouri Lottery ticket sales have broken previous records.
